I recently saw an episode of No Reservations w/Anthony Bourdain (I know the last name is misspelled) on the Travel Channel & he was in India talking to a reporter from there. This reporter mentioned something about the GD---something to the effect of there were people in a part of town (New Dehli?) that were heavily into them, and he himself was a head. Bourdain is NOT a head & seems to have some animosity for us as he's obviously a Punk from back in the day considering the Dead Boys & Ramones shirts he's worn on the show.

from who? I personally enjoy the Ramones (saw'em back in '94 or '95), the Dead Boys, Dead Kennedys, Circle Jerks, Black Flag, M.O.D.---just saw Iggy & the Stooges last Wednesday in Philly. Having known many "punks" over the years, and having considered myself one for awhile in high school (a SKATE punk anyway), there are A LOT of them that readily profess their hatred of "the Dead" & their heads. I was surprised & dismayed @ the looks I got from some of the younger punks @ the show, dressed as I was in jeans, a sport coat & scarf(it was cold!), my Dr Martins, and my very un-punk--or hippie for that matter--hair. It seemed as though they were saying I didn't belong to their club & what was I doing there. Laughable now that I'm a little older & possibly wiser than I was when I had my own little "punk attitude" in high school. Oh well, it was a great show, and Iggy @ 60yrs looks better than than most his age considering his lifestyle in the early years.

OI!

---seeing Wolfmother next Wednesday, & can't wait! A pretty hard rockin' trio from Australia.

Ahhhh this reminds me of the time me a my buddy went down the the Height St. barber shop and he decided to get foot tall liberty spikes made out of his then long hair and go to those excellent summer of 90 cal expo shows. It was completely hilarious to have people we both know come up to me and say to me only, hey hows it going and who's this freakin punk your hangin out with. There was actually a lot of reverse prejudice among the Dead ranks too as it turned out. Could probably write a sociology paper on it and yes I did have to drive the rest of the Tour so my friend didn't ruin his precious spikes but thats another story.

Yea, I can recall seeing a few people with Liberty Spikes @ shows. Some just had "normal" hair & their leather jackets with their Exploited patches on the back. While it did look a little out of place, I didn't think they were any more out of their element than the thousands of jock partiers @ shows here in the East.

Glad to hear re Iggy - I see him on Saturday at the Warfield. Especially looking forward to Mike Watt on bass with the Asheton bros. ( a lot of good minutemen/firehose stuff on archive). If I'm still feeling up to it, I'll venture over to Ratdog in the park on Sunday to see another old fart do his thang....

Mike Watt BLASTED his bass the whole show. About 2/3 through the set Iggy started calling people up on stage---there were probably 50 people thrashing about that climbed up from the crowd. It was funny watching the dude whose job it was to pick up the mike stand, & get the flotsom that was thrown on stage off of the stage, following Iggy through the crowd trying to keep everyone from going up & hugging & kissing him. You've got something to look forward to, let me tell ya...

Great; I am really looking forward to it. BTW, I just recommended to my buddy, who can't make the show because he has to go DC on business, that he catch Wolfmother at the 9:30 club next week. Glad to see that rock is not dead (no pun intended)

Well...the show is SOLD OUT:( Now I can't promise anything, BUT, I do have an extra ticket. This ticket is intended for my son, but his current grades in school may yet prevent him from going. So, if your friend goes to the 9:30 Club and waits outside, maybe with a sign reading "TREE-AP" like waiting for someone @ the airport, I MIGHT be able to hook him up. I guess I could part with the ticket for $40.00. Face is $25, but with all of the surcharges, taxes, parking fes, convenience charges, I'll stand to make enough to buy one of the 9:30 Club's over-priced drinks. Anyway, if I see such a sign, or hear someone calling me out I'll be sure & help.

I have a framed and signed copy of the Ramone's Rocket to Russia on the same wall as a framed playbill of Jerry at the Lunt Fontane. Loving the two is not mutually exclusive.

Anyone remember the Violent Femmes- Dead show at Buckeye lake. Truly an all time classic.

Thanks for the recommendation. I have never heard this show! Good news, there is a crispy SBD on the Archive. Man, I love this site. Truly a treasure trove of music.

a friend saw that show & came back saying I wouldn't believe who opened. VF weren't a band I ever thought would open for the GD.

The thing I remember most about this show is that Jerry seemed truly inspired throughout. Don't know if it had anything to do with the Femmes {who were excellent BTW} opening but I like to think it was.

Wow, listening to the show now and the Sugaree is outta sight. You're right, they seemed fired up to play that night. Even Vince sounds good. Gotta love Bruce on piano.

What's your email address? I can get you a mp3 copy if that is acceptable. Not for trade or other distrubution of course. Not trying to pollute the trading gene pool, just trying to help a brother out.

Hmmm, It's very tempting but I've got a friend who's bringing over an I-pod full of shows in a month and I guess if I've waited 16 years to hear this show I should probably wait another month and go with the high grade for full effect. Thanks a ton though I truly appreciate it.

Let me know if you change your mind. My iPod has AAC files which I think are lossy like MP3. SHN and FLAC are the only ones that are true lossless, or WAV from SHN/FLAC. Anyways, thanks for the great recommnedation. I plan to turn the soil for my garden this weekend and this will be playing... I'll have to turn it up when it get's to that Let It Grow!!! Have a good weekend.
